Night Flying!

034-2 034-1

At a recent multirotor fun fly held at the Palomar RC Flyers Johnson Flying Field, Fallbrook, California, club members and guests from across the country flew multirotors and helis day and night. Also flown was a flying wing, shown here. Several aircraft used satellite-based GPS augmented with onboard inertial navigation systems, and some impressed the crowds with stage-center demonstrations of autonomous hovering and landings. Main image is a right to left landing, with pilot retrieval and exit to left. Canon 40D; f/16, ISO- 1600, 15sec. exp. Inset is a DJI Phantom quadcop- ter piloted by editorial contributor Scott Dedic.
